Bhakti and the Heart - Part 1 of 10

As one progresses in the bhakti, Love and the submissive attitude consequent to that, the SAdhanA that has been done so far make the mind and intellect light and they are drawn by the ego to be sucked into the recesses of the heart.

Everybody knows that in that bhakti, the true bhakti wherein the individual soul delivers itself to the paramAtmA -- this is Atma-nivedanaM – there is no role or work for the intellect.

Not only that.

Even the mind has no work there. Mind is nothing but an aggregate of volitions and indecisions (samkalpa-vikalpa).

These two have no role in true bhakti. True bhakti is the state where we rest in the thought “It is Thy Will”.
